MORGANTON, NORTH CAROLINA -- I ordered a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox from Rooster Bush Chevrolet on June 30 2010 and paid a down payment on the car at that time. I was told it would probably take six weeks to deliver. I have now waited 11 weeks with no communication from GM about the delay or the expected delivery date. When the local dealer has called he has been assured my order is in line and waiting assembly- why is it taking so long to get a new car when I chose American at a time that I am trying to do my part for the economy.
In hind site I would have done things very differently had I known it would take three months or longer . . .
Well here is another invention to prove employees have too much time on their hands. The key-less resistor ignition. Or better put a hundred dollar cell phone sized do it all key-less entry, start and what ever, in place of a 1.00 key to get this Corvette moving.

If I knew this POS was going to cause me trouble I'd have bought a 06 with a key ignition. For you geeks that want all the bells and whistles buy an 08, but for the die hard motor head you will be amazed at the BS in this cars computer and tricks under its belt. I want a corvette that goes and handles not a bells and whistles girlie sports car.
Next car will be a no frills real mans car.
Thanks to the girlie men at GM to remove the hair on GM's chest.
EDMOND, OKLAHOMA -- We purchased a 2006 Chevy Silverado 3500 from Bob Howard Chevrolet in August 2006. Within two months of purchasing the truck, we noticed that the rear bumper began to blister. When we showed the issue to the service department, we were advised to let the paint continue to blister for a while until rust appeared and that the warranty would take care of the rust problem, but not blistered bumper paint. We did exactly that. Now, the warranty does not cover rust on the bumper.
We went to Chevrolet and asked them why they refused to honor the warranty like we were told by the Bob Howard service department. Chevrolet replied saying that the original warranty would cover the problem had the service department addressed the issue when we had blistered paint, but now that the bumper turned to rust, we were out of luck. They could offer us; however, a new bumper for around $600. Now, we see why General Motors went bankrupt. This was our first Chevy and will most certainly be our last.

1000 dollars to replace all three 02 sensors, another couple hundred on the parking brakes. Seems Chevy can't engineer a simple parking brake cable properly.
Maybe if they spent more on hiring qualified engineers instead of pampering their corporate jet fleet, they could build a truck that doesn't require extensive repair bills every 6 months. Not to mention the page after page of recalls that are plaguing GM.
Also,,, The should include a "leaf blower" to remove the accumulation that drops behind the body panel. If you own one and live near a tree, you know what I'm talking about.
More bone-usses for the Execs!
Tired of fixing
We are getting tired of fixing my Trailblazer. The first couple of years it was a good vehicle. However, in the past year, the ignition switch went - $300 for that fix. Then the lower tie-rods went ... read full review3 Replies - Latest reply on 01/08/2010
I bought a new Traverse. Shortly after noticed a/c water leaking on the carpet. Car stayed at dealer service dept. for a month waiting on the part with the dash taken completely out. When I got it back it was doing the same thing in the same place. GM customer service has been terrible. They act like they don't care about the customer. Now they don't know what to do about the problem. I have taken it back 3 times and they want me to carry it to another service dept., so the car has been in the shop half the time I have owned it. I have owned only GM cars and trucks, but will not own another one.8 Replies - Latest reply on 07/14/2013Add reply

When I had a Chrysler product my family bought three others. This is my first Chevy in many years, it is also my last.
I am writing this complaint for my friend since he cannot write English. We live in Turkey, Adana and my friend owns a 2008 Chevrolet jeep. A few months ago he has taken his jeep to the Chevrolet service in Adana and he was informed that the jeep needs a new part. And when he returned to check on the jeep, he caught them putting a second hand steering wheel box in his car. They had big argument and he insisted on a new part. He found out that Izmir is the center and they ordered the new part for him, it has been over 2 months and the part has not been put. We know that Chevrolet is very careful about its brand and it values the customer satisfaction.
Unfortunately, Adana service tried to put second hand part from local area and trick my friend as if it was new. Please know what is going on at Adana location. We wanted to let you know.
TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- I recently decided to purchase a new SUV. I've driven trucks all my life, but wanted a change this go around. After seeing the new Chevy Traverse, I fell in love. I visited a local dealer, South Pointe Chevy, and they tried to meet a budget I already had in place for a new vehicle purchase. At first they could not meet my needs for pricing. I was a little sad, but I did not blame the problem on the dealer, but decided to contact GM on what happened. I actually got a call directly from GM, I didn't get any promises, but was told they would "look into it." The next day my dealer called me back with the price I needed to make the new purchase work. Fantastic service! And an extremely fun vehicle. I recommend South Pointe to anyone considering any new vehicle. I'm still being amazed at what this SUV can do. And, the ride is nothing short of amazing. I traded in a Chevy truck that I drove for 10 years with no problems at all. The GM of 20 years ago is gone.
Today I'm 100% convinced they beat any foreign maker hands down in every single way, including the sales process.

If you live anywhere in the Sterling Heights area of Michigan, I suggest going to Buff Whelan Chevrolet. Not only did they give me a great deal on a car, but it took me less than two hours to walk out the door with the keys.

Not only that, they're customer service is excellent - which means a lot to me, a woman who usually gets screwed over in a car dealership.
I was on my way to the Chevrolet dealer with the intent of purchasing a Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid when I turned on the radio and heard an advertisement for the vehicle on Rush Limbaugh.

I immediately turned around and went to another dealer. I can't believe Chevrolet would advertise with someone who spews out such a polarizing message of hate. I should think they could find a better venue for their money.

KIRKLAND, WASHINGTON -- I drove a brand new 2006 Uplander off the lot last week only to notice that it makes a noise when you turn. Upon inspecting the wheels, the rotors are rusted out as well as the wheel well area. I have called two dealerships and both have tried to tell me that rusted out parts on a new vehicle are normal. Finally the fleet salesman suggested that I bring the vehicle back to the dealership to be inspected and it is a brand new car. I picked it up with only 6 miles on the car. No one wants to take responsibility. I have never seen rust like this on a brand new vehicle. I think that Chevy uses faulty materials and then expects consumers to just drive the car and not worry that it is all rusted out. 4 Replies - Latest reply on 01/03/2006Add reply
TEXAS -- I just wanted to compliment Chevy on the safety of the 2001 Cavilier. My husband fell asleep while driving home from work one day, hit a power pole and flipped the car. The car was totalled and the power pole broke, but he had a cut on his leg, from something inside the car and a bump on the head. Everyone who saw the wreck and the car was absolutely amazed to see him walking away from it. Thank you Chevy for having the safety features that you have.Add reply
